An ounce of prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

Please help make it possible for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation to continue improving the safety of our community.

The injuries that result from tragedies such as fires, suffocation or car crashes are the number one cause of death for children and teenagers in the United States. Children have the right to a healthy, safe environment and protection from injury. Treated as diseases, both intentional and unintentional injuries are cured by prevention. Unfortunately, too many families, particularly in Detroit, don’t have access to the information and resources they need to keep their children safe from tragedies such as car crashes, fires, suffocation and other injuries.Your gift, big or small, will help improve health and safety for children and their families in neighborhoods that are plagued with high injury rates by providing education and safety equipment such as smoke alarms, car seats, booster seats and pack and plays.

Join us in our efforts to make our communities a safer place.
